NEW GARDEN

thisTHIS IS MY NEW FRONT GARDEN. IT WAS MY "MAJOR" PROJECT FOR THIS SUMMER'S GARDENING. IT TOOK ME ABOUT SIX MONTHS TO PLAN IT AND DECIDE ON THE TYPE OF PLANTS I WANTED. I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE ALL PERENNIAL AND THE FOCUS WAS ON DIFFERENT COLORS AND TEXTURES OF LEAVES. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE FINAL PRODUCT. I HAVE RECEIVED LOTS OF COMPLIMENTS ON IT NOT THAT I WANT TO BRAG.
HUBBY GONE A DAY NOW. HE CALLED TWICE ALREADY. HOPEFULLY, THE TIME WILL FLY BY.
THE WEATHER HAS BEEN NICE AND THE HUMIDITY HAS DEPARTED. JUST BEAUTIFUL SUMMER DAYS. I BEST ENJOY THEM WHILE I CAN AS THE MONTH OF AUGUST IS ALMOST UPON US AND THEN WINTER IS ONE STEP CLOSER...YUCK!!!
I ALWAYS FEEL WEIRD WHEN AUGUST ROLLS AROUND. I FEEL AS IF I AM MISSING SOMETHING. I KNOW WHAT IT IS THOUGH. FOR 33 YEARS I WAS ALWAYS BACK IN MY CLASSROOM COME THE FIRST OF AUGUST AND WOULD GO ALMOST EVERYDAY FOR A FEW HOURS. PLUS I WAS BUSY BUYING SCHOOL SUPPLIES.I GUESS I MISS IT. OLD HABITS DIE HARD.
GOING TO DO A LITTLE YARD WORK TODAY BUT NOT MUCH. I AM TRYING TO FINISH A BOOK AND I THINK I WILL JUST TAKE THE TIME AND VEG OUT WITH IT.
LAST NIGHT/EVENING I WAS UP LATE. I WAS MAKING ANKLE BRACELETS. I AM GOING TO SELL THEM. I ENJOY DOING THEM BUT ONE CAN ONLY HAVE SO MANY, YEAH, YOU HEARD RIGHT. THE JEWELLERY LADY SAYS SHE HAS TOO MUCH!!! LOL.
WELL, IT IS ALMOST 1:00 AND I HAVE NOT EVEN HAD BREAKFAST YET AND MY TUMMY IS TALKING TO ME. SO OFF I GO TO FED IT.
EVERYONE BE WELL. DEBBIE

All your gardens are lovely Debbie! You and Michael have such a good and sweet relationship.
August must be bittersweet for you. Hope you had a yummy breakfast. xo

Very, very pretty. I can hardly keep up with mine. I put in to many over the years and now I am paying. Even thinking about scaling down, I have 13. I love August but you do get scared because you know what is coming and summer goes so, so fast. Canoeing always lets me know fall is close, the nights are chilly. I have 5 gold ankle bracelets, you can never have to many, well maybe you can, but they are small. I am reading 2 books at once. I like to go back and forth it makes you wonder what is happening in the other book. I am a little behind in books. I am reading The Doctor\'s Wife and Me and Emma. I will take them with me, sometimes there is quiet time. Not often. The men golf on Saturday and us girls swim and laugh and have fun. I actually have a strawberry Daqauari...can\'t spell that and I don\'t drink. Then we do our own thing, lay in the sun, read etc. Leaving Sunday, work tomorrow. See you when I get back. Hugs Naomi xo
